    Size 4 Me owners...

    Are you having a heck of a time buckling your seat? It takes a lot of pushing and wiggling to get it just right to get it buckled. Is it just mine?

    Attaching rfing tether. Is this ok?

    I drive a Mazda mpv. My xtsl is installed behind the passenger seat rfing. There is nowhere on the seat in front of it to rear tether but on the seat the xtsl is installed on there is a stationary bar that runs along the seat at the front of it. Can I tether to that? Thanks.

    Help adjusting Radian Harness

    Hi. I have an xtsl and for the most part I love it. I've just passed it down to the baby and I'd forgotten how hard it is to remove and replace the harness straps on the little sliver clip thing so you can adjust the harness height. In the end I ended u[ using my car key to wedge and wiggle...

There is an mpv in our area that has 90,000 miles, is a 2005 and great condition (owned...

    New Dionos - easier to adjust?

    So I have an radian XTSL which I am very happy with except it is a pain in the bum to tighten the straps. Yes, I know I have to ratchet them. But I think the issue is my vehicle seat. It seems that there seat presses on the strap when installed tight and prevents it from ratcheting properly. It...

    How confident can I be...

    ...installing my own car seats? I'd love to have them checked by a tech but the best we have is the guy at the local fire station who has no qualifications and told me my sr22 had to be installed outboard because if a seat has latch you cannot use a seat belt. ??? So today my chaperone arrived...
